North Adams Public Schools

Procedure for Use of School Facilities

Anyone wishing to use a school facility for any purpose must submit a Facilities Usage Application form.  This form is available to the right or at any school building or at the Superintendent’s Office.

 

The form must be submitted to the building principal at least two weeks in advance.  Since there is often “competition” for use of key areas, and since the facilities are assigned on a first come basis, additional advance notice is beneficial to both the user and the school.  School facilities are rarely available during the school day, but the Superintendent may consider exceptions.

 

If the facility is available, the principal will sign the form and send it to the Superintendent for approval. A copy of the form will be returned to the requester.  If the facility is not available, the form will be returned with the reason so noted.  Anyone not receiving an approved or disapproved form back in seven business days should contact the Superintendent’s Office to see if the form has been processed.

 

Use of any school facility may involve building rental and/or custodial fees.

 

A summary of the Rules and Regulations for using school facilities is available to the right.  A copy of the full School Committee Policy on the usage of school facilities is available upon request from the Superintendent’s Office.  You may access the entire on-line policy manual by clicking here.

 

No public function should be posted and/or advertised until the Facilities Usage Application is approved.  Otherwise, the risk is taken that the space may not be available and the posting/advertisement will be incorrect.
